Damnation starts with little steps, by arrogantly thinking that you are wiser than our great forbears, by tinkering with truth, by compromising, by departing from the straight and narrow path of the Emperor’s light.

He looks good, but I'm very disappointed to see FW rip off the Omegon model.

I cannot wait to see how other people paint it. I really miss the old FW style. I can't get on with this hyper contrast painting they have now.

Look how small the base is! Evocative too, he's stabbing a dude in the back, as is his way. A suitable arrogant finisher too.

 

Good stuff overall. The helm has been simplified from the art; fewer hydras (one on the crest rather than five) and no webbed collar mounted with hydra-heads. This is for the best, it would have been overly cluttered on a mini. That gem is very big though... Pretty distracting and unfortunately accentuated by the OSL.

 

The spear is improved from the Praetorian of Dorn cover. The rear head/counterweight still looks like a fence post but the actual head is great and appropriately sized. You can easily imagine Alpharius using it as a sword-catcher and flipping someone's weapon out of their grip before getting them with a reverse thrust.

 

Not exactly a flaw but the pteruges hanging from his right pauldron seem to be in a different place to those on his left one. Maybe they're very free-hanging and capable of swinging from back to front but it looks odd.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

So it's how the 1KSons on the FW website are painted - very glossy and shiny coloured metallics.

 

Usually done by getting a load of contrast down on the metals then airbrushing a clear paint over the top.

That is a stunning model. So much story and feel in that pose, and the dead marine is the icing.

Perfect mini, I will most definitely be getting him at Warhammer Fest! Not massively struck on the scheme; I'll be sticking to a grimey Sotek Green for the main armour, but adding in some dashes of black on it (specifically the cape), the silver won't be NMM and I'll be painting anything green in a light bronze instead. Another fantastic effort from FW.

Yet another fantastic Primarch miniature! Looking forward to WH Fest for more reveals.

 

@strumanchu I concur with the dead marine, I'm already thinking of basing ideas, bet he'd look good painted as a traitor marine pref word bearer!
